The Future of Retail is Hybrid

Merging on-line & traditional shop display to create a unique customer experience & dramatically increase retail space without the extra cost.

A Co-operative works when everybody is content and shares the same future values

We want to work only with small businesses that have an active interest in providing organic & craft products from Thailand. We want to work with you as partners, not competitors, especially in the current economic climate and with the knowledge that so many of the large companies like to copy what we do best and mass market every unusual product and destroying its value.

Sprout Story is looking for quality partners who wish to sell related products on Sprout Story as a concessionaire store.

A retail concession is an agreement, which allows your organisation to promote its products and services to the public, within another organisation’s retail environment, whether it be a retail store, hybrid store or on-line store.

Where appropriate for retailers, we will provide you with your own branded home page and catalogue, which would reside within the Sprout Story store. We will provide you with a secure connection to our database in order for you to up-date your catalogue and view the order history. Orders would be placed with Sprout Story which would be forwarded to you along with the agreed 'wholesale' monies for you to despatch straight to the customer. You use your own packing slip which should contain details of how the customer can return the goods for an exchange or refund.

In effect we retail your products and you wholesale to us. We agree a sales price and a commission/sellers fee percentage for Sprout Story.

Your concession store will be added to the relevant section within Sprout Story as well as being advertised on the homepage, similar to the directory you would see at the entrance to a shopping centre.

You may promote your store in Sprout Story as you wish, or not promote it at all and rely on our exiting visitors to come across your store. But always better to try and do something to help!

In these most difficult and challenging economic times we welcome our competitors who we know are all small businesses like us. We believe that working together, in times of tough competition from larger companies who copy what we do, is the best way forward for all.

If you wish to consider becoming a partner of Sprout Story please contact us. There is nothing to lose as we do not charge for the setup and work on commission only.
